It's All Over. =(
Capitals 2 Rangers 1
So the season ends with a nail-biter of a game 7. The boys came out strong, dominating the play in the 1st and much of the 2nd periods. Nik Antropov scored New York's only goal, assisted by hardworking Sean Avery and Brandon Dubinsky. I guess we can spin this one last time: NY Rangers Goal Celebration Song
The Caps took control of the 3rd, limiting New York to 1 measly shot. Sergei Federov scored the game winner with about 5 minutes left. guh.
King Henrik rebounded from the previous losses with a very strong game, but he needed to be perfect, and that's asking too much from your goalie. The papers are full of postmortem dissections of the Ranger line-up, and obviously as a fan, I'm hoping for a more dynamic offense next season.
But all sadness aside, the boys made the playoffs, and that means Ranger fans had a pretty good year. So until next season...
LET'S GO RANGERS!
